Course Development and Enhancement (ECI) Funding Agreement

Posted by Sarthak Prasad on June 30, 2010

For FY2010, the Student Sustainability Committee chose to solicit proposals for the development or enhancement of courses related to sustainability jointly with the Environmental Change Institute. Such a program allows the Committee to select proposals to support, while leaving project management and administration to a better-suited entity. The program received ten proposals for consideration, out of which the following six proposals were chosen for funding: ENGR 298 – LINC Bike Sharing – Prof. Bruce Litchfield - $5,000 LA 390/590 – Landscapes, Sustainability, & Human Health – Prof. Bill Sullivan - $2,420 PHYCS 150 – How Nature Works – Prof. Scott Willenbrock - $4,790 GEOG 130 - Social Science Approaches to Environment-Society Relations – Prof. Tom Bassett - $5,000 ME 470 – Senior Design – Prof. Stephen Platt - $4,000 BADM 532 / 533 – Sustainable Product and Market Development for Sustainable Marketplaces – Prof Madhu Viswanathan - $5,000 The ECI is committing $13,420 in support of an additional course and matching SSC allocations to two of the above courses. All courses participating in this program will meet program requirements established by the ECI and SSC, submit materials to the ECI for archiving and participate in the ECI’s annual symposium. Thus the Committee recommends funding this program in the amount of $26,210.
